Abstract [sv]

Aktivitetsbaserat arbetssätt har sedan några år tillbaka slagit igenom på marknaden och blivit en stor trend både i Sverige och resten av världen. Det är ett omstritt begrepp sombåde fått lovord och kritik. Studiens syfte är att undersöka hur medarbetare inom akademin upplever att arbeta i en aktivitetsbaserad miljö med fokus på psykosocial arbetsmiljö och sociala relationer samt om det finns ett samband mellan individens arbetsuppgifter och deras upplevelse. En kvalitativ studie har genomförts på ett universitet/högskola i Sverige, totalt sex semistrukturerade intervjuer har genomförts. Respondenternas uppfattning varierade gällande deras upplevelser av det aktivitetsbaserade arbetssättet dock var flertalet negativa. De huvudsakliga faktorerna som lyftes var ljudnivån och transparens, respondenterna nyttjar olika copingstrategier för att få bukt med problemen. Resultatet visar att de sociala relationerna på arbetsplatsen både förstärkts och försämrats. Respondenternas arbetsuppgifter belystes som problematiska inom ett aktivitetsbaserat arbetssätt. Utifrån studiens resultat var det som var mest påtagligt negativt för respondenternas psykosociala arbetsmiljö och upplevelsen av den aktivitetsbaserade miljön de faktorer som låg utanför individens egenkontroll, där lyckade copingstrategier inte var tillämpningsbara.

Abstract [en]

Activity-based working has been on the rise for some years and has become a big trend both in Sweden and the rest of the world. It is a controversial concept that has both received praise and criticism. The aim of the study is to investigate how employees in the academia experience working in an activity-based office with a focus on psychosocial work environment and social relations, and whether there is a connection between the individual's tasks and their experience. A qualitative study has been conducted at a university/college in Sweden, a total of six semistructured interviews have been held. Respondents' perception of their experiences of the activity-based working varied, but the most respondents were negative. The main factors that were lifted were the sound level and the transparency, the respondents used different coping strategies to overcome the problems. The result shows that the social relations in the workplace have both been strengthened and deteriorated. The respondents' tasks were highlighted as problematic within an activity-based office. Based on the study's results, the most negative factor for the respondents' psychosocial work environment and the experience of the activitybased working were the factors that were outside the individual's control,where successful coping strategies were not applicable.
